Penhaligon's Latest Fragrances

I love Penhaligon's fragrances and I've used them quite a few  as well as other products that I've bought in its beautiful stores, full of atmosphere and scents. This year I've seen two new Stories around this iconic British brand, with its elegant bottles  recognisable all over the world that scream of sophisticated elegance dated since 1870. One of the stories for this brand is about Egypt, about its mysteries and voluptuous scents.
Alizarin is very intense with top notes of Mandarin, Tuberose, Iris and Mimosa and blended with Leather, Oud  and Vetiver. Its name comes from Alizarin, a red pigment used by the Ancient Egyptians to dye their textiles in red. Its packaging is the unmistakable  Penhaligon's glass bottle with the round top and the little bow at the neck. A great fragrance for the intense lady.

 Oud de Nil is the other fragrance inspired by the Ancient Egypt, with a fresher scent obtained using Bergamot, Grapefruit, Jasmine, Rose, Orange blossom and with base notes of  Oud, Papyrus, Resins and Amber.  This perfume is what you would take with you on a cruise down the Nile. The fragrance for a young lady.
Family Portrait is the other story by Penhaligon's  with these 4 fragrances,  two for the ladies and two for the gentlemen.  The bottles are very particular with the tops shaped like hunt trophies in one of those family piles in the countryside.
The Tragedy of Lord George is the one with the stag shaped top and there are only three ingredients in it like in the other three fragrances. This one has got head notes of Brandy, heart notes of Shaving Soap and base notes of Tonka Bean.  Next to Lord George is  his wife, The Revenge of Lady Blanche with head notes of Powdery Orris, heart notes of Narcissus and base notes of Hyacinth.The Coveted Duchess Rose with its  head notes of Mandarin, heart notes of Rose and base notes of Musky Wood is a mix of innocence and shrewdness. Last but not least Much Ado About the Duke who married Lady Rose, has got head notes of Peppery Rose, heart notes of Gin and base notes of Leathery Wood.
As you can see these four fragrances by Penhaligon's have the classic  quintessentially British scents that you would expect when  reading a classic novel or while visiting a private member club.
Immerse yourself in the story at and I'm sure more characters will join these two couples.
